    UM looks very good. He looks mean! If he’s leader class I’m tempted to replace current Generations UM with him.

    Hound, Prowl, OP and Chromia look good.

    Where’s Megs!!!!

    That sure does seem like a cab bot’s leg.

    That TR Soundwave redeco is definitely tops on my list. I missed the original release. Bring it!

    It does, but it looks nothing like Optimus' leg.

    Pretty much swore off mainline TFs in favor of MP and 3Ps, but damn if there isn't some good looking stuff here.

    Do we have any confirmation that the silver paint wash is going to be on the retail figures?

    I'd be okay if the condor mold was replaced with Eject. So close!

    First impressions from an oldtimer:

    YESSSSSS!

    Ultra Magnus stole the show at that NY Toyfair in 2015 (?) and looks like he's doing it again here. I'm not sure how I feel about his chunks becoming RotF Jetfire style armor chunks but the bot mode looks fanastic and the truck mode has cues to RiD/TF2000/Car Robots God Magnus and it makes me feel tingly all over.

    I'm even more blown away by Sideswipe...that car mode looks even better now.

    Hound and Ironhide- two really solid looking toys. It goes without saying that Ironhide is WAAAY overdue. :D 

    The Micromasters look like a hoot!!

    I was pretty satisfied with the huge shelf (and also a very full bin) of Prime Wars Trilogy figures that I have amassed but I'll be damned if I'm not on board to do it again.

    Well, Magnus’s cab is radically different from Optimus. I am actually impressed that they used different cabs for the two of them. Not that I’m complaining, because that Magnus altmode is all kinds of rad.

    Looking at the back of Chromia I don't think she has a Combiner peg. That should be sitting behind her robot head but it looks hollow.

    It's an RiD 2k reference. So either he and Prime are going to produce an Omega Prime reference or Takara has other plans for this figure.

    The larger figures do nothing for me. I'm not a big fan of Cybertronian alt modes and I already have Classics versions of all those characters. I have a feeling that I'm going to buy way too many of those Micromasters, though. I have a huge weak spot for tiny Transformers (I had the Race Car Patrol as a kid, so I know I'm at least getting Swindler and Roadhandler).

    Ironhide's the winner for me. Magnus looks good, probably gonna get him and move CW Magnus to my IDW shelf when I get one cleared.

    So, Cog. Standard release, or are Hasbro doing a Build-a-Figure thing like they do with marvel legends?

    Love Magnus' RID-inspired alt mode. He, Ironhide, Optimus, just everybody looks badass. The Micromasters look fun as well.

    I think the best thing is the police car with Cyber Glyphs.
